Georgian and Swiss presidents Salome Zurabishvili and Guy Parmelin have pledged to deepen their two countries’ ties in a phone conversation.

During the call, President Zurabishvili thanked Guy Parmelin for his contribution and efforts in the release of Georgian citizen Zaza Gakheladze, who was illegally detained and sentenced by the occupation forces over a year ago.

On his part, President Parmelin reiterated his invitation for President Zurabishvili to visit Switzerland as her official visit to the Swiss Confederation was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.
